I am Caucasian (white) with dark brown hair & dark brown eyes. I had a test patch done to check if I would hyperpigment with Fraxel Restore. I did not. I know Fraxel restore can cause new brown spots (PIHP) in people with dark eyes and dark hair. It would appear that is no longer a risk for me.
I know to wear a high factor sunblock & avoid the sun. Is it possible for the existing pigmentation (a few flecks) 2 darken if I get Fraxel Resore? Or does this always lighten when the laser goes over it?
